I was so thrilled to find out that Trupanion was going to cover my dog's Stenotic Nares surgery! Prior to doing the surgery, I had heard from many other French Bulldog owners that the procedure would likely not be covered. Since it's SUCH a good surgery to do on a dog with narrow nostrils, I decided that we would go ahead and do it regardless of whether or not it would be covered afterward. My dog's quality of life was (and IS) worth more than whatever the surgery cost was. The surgery went well, and a few days afterwards I decided to submit a claim. To be honest with you, I was so convinced that it wouldn't be covered that I almost didn't even bother submitting. So you can imagine my surprise when I got an email from Trupanion telling me that they would be happy to cover it. I am just thrilled!
